Truckload carrier Schneider National will close two fuel, maintenance and operations facilities in Seville, Ohio and Green Bay, Wis. on Nov. 17.
The company said the two are the least utilized centers within the company's network of national driver facilities. The closings will eliminate 105 office, maintenance and driver services positions. Drivers will be reassigned to one of Schneider’s other 24 operating points based on freight flows or proximity to driver hometowns, the company said. As part of the closure, approximately 80 Green Bay operations office associates will be relocated to another facility in Green Bay by the end of the year.
"We regularly assess our Operating Center locations to ensure that we have a cost effective and business efficient network to meet the needs of our customers and drivers. Freight flows, driver domiciles, customer locations and the maintenance and fueling requirements of our fleet are all taken into consideration," said Mark Rourke, president, van/truckload for Schneider National.
Company support for affected associates includes severance packages, career transition services and an extended Employee Assistance Program. In addition, Schneider will host job fairs in Seville and Green Bay to introduce affected associates to area employers. Associates will have opportunities to apply for any other available Schneider job openings for which they are qualified.
A $3.7 billion company headquartered in Green Bay, Wis., Schneider National conducts business in more than 28 countries. Schneider employs more than 19,000 associates worldwide.
